Notes & Reviews:

Chiara Soave and Cecilia Baccolo's Schubert interpretations have always been welcomed enthusiastically by critics and audiences. In 2010, the Duo was invited to perform a program entirely dedicated to the great Austrian composer at the Concertgebouw Hall in Amsterdam, the only Italian piano duo to be featured in that renowned hall.

American Record Guide, May/June 2013
Soave and Baccolo are a young Italian piano duo. They have been performing together since 1995, which accounts for precise ensemble. They have substantial concert and festival performance credentials and can be found on the internet performing not only Schubert, but La Valse at two pianos and the fiendishly difficult Liszt-Donezetti Sonnambula Fantasy. Schubert suits them best at this point in their career. Their attention to detail and musicality bring these great works alive. Recorded sound is quite good, as are the booklet notes. For a single disc of great Schubert duets, you will be very happy with this release.

MusicWeb International, 6th June 2013
The performances are energetic and vigorous...the enduring impression left by this disc is of something big and beautiful - the right thing to feel after listening to a Schubert album.
